From the Paper:"Hispanics face similar barriers to healthcare, as do Native Americans. These are the lack of providers, which are close in proximity to the patient. Many Hispanics live in rural areas, which are far from healthcare providers. This problem does not only affect those in rural areas, but urban areas as well, another area which is heavily populated by Hispanics. Patients in this area may still have to travel quite a distance for healthcare, the choice of which may be limited due to type of coverage they have and they may not have adequate means of transportation. Finally, a healthcare provider who is closer may not be accepted due to differences in nationality."
